OK, so now you know where I've been!
Here's the brief story: our niece ended up pregnant accidentally at 17. She knew about our struggles to have children on our own, so she approached us with the best resolution possible - she would carry the child to term and let Katy and I adopt him! She made this decision on her own without our influence - we didn't even know she was pregnant until she had made her decision. So, of course, we said yes! I mean, the ability to adopt a newborn child that will probably look a LITTLE bit like us is absolutely astonishing! He arrived on Friday evening at 5:02 Colorado time. He weighed 8 lbs, 12.5 ounces and is 18.5" long. God bless her for giving us the most amazing gift we ever dreamed of! Heck, we couldn't even DREAM something this incredible!
On to the pictures - here's the chronological order of the day and the next few days. Starting with our niece, with some pictures of the doctor, my sister and mom, and of course us in there, and ending with my boy sleeping on my chest (I swear I had tears pouring down my face just before that picture was taken). Please ignore how tired we look - I think most of it was Katy anticipating yet another camera flash in her face!
